In Generation Utøya we follow four young women who survived the heinous terrorist act in 2011. None of the four has lost her strong sense of political commitment. Ina Libak was head of Workers' Youth League for a period, Kamzy Gunaratnam is deputy mayor of Oslo, Line Hoem is part of the Labour Party leadership in Møre og Romsdal, while Renate Tårnes is an adviser in the Norwegian Union of Municipal and General Employees.
They were either mortally wounded, or they saw their boyfriends and friends being executed by the terrorist. Many of them struggle with post-traumatic stress and anxiety today, but they have chosen to confront the fear and face the hatred with a strong commitment to politics and volunteer work.
